Interview with Les Campbell
QUESTION 13
INTERVIEWER:

OK, once again, what were you trying to do in your classroom?

LES CAMPBELL:

I was a history teacher by profession and training within the Board of Education. And I saw my role as raising the consciousness of young African-American children to the circumstances surrounding their development and making them more motivated to try to achieve educationally within the school system. I used all types of literature, I used bulletin boards, I used audio-visual materials, I used trips, as well as materials that I concocted myself.
